The World Health Organization (WHO) today declared Sri Lanka as a Rubella-free-country, the Health Ministry said.

Health Ministry’s Media Secretary Nipun Ekanayake said that the certificate declaring Sri Lanka as a Rubella-free-country was given to Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne by WHO Regional Director for South-East Asia Poonam Khetrapal Singh at WHO South-East Asia Region meeting in New Delhi, India.

“Sri Lanka was declared as Malaria-free-country in 2015, Filaria-free-country in 2016 and Neonatal Tetanus-free-country in 2017 by the WHO. Today’s declaration of Sri Lanka as a Rubella-free-country was another landmark for the healthcare services in 2018,” he said. (Kalathma Jayawardhane)
